It's time for another scrappy post, but today I am driving to Savannah, GA for QuiltCon 2017 - I'm so excited! - so I'm just going to share some inspiration with you today.
First of all, I want to be sure you have a chance to see this fabulous post by Kat of Kat & Cat Quilts. If you don't know Kat already, she is the brains behind Covered In Love, which was one of our Hands2Help charities last year. She is also, by choice, a scrappy quilter, and she has a great idea for using up some of those precious small scraps that we hoard...
Bookmarks! What a great idea! Her technique is very simple and you can read all about it here.
And here are some pretties I've seen on Pinterest this week - lovely quilts one and all!
Isn't this a cool way to do a charm quilt? I love the focus point the white squares give this one...
And I have long wanted to do a bookshelf quilt, but wasn't willing to commit to the "realistic" look - and yet I really love the way this one looks! Less realism, but still gets its point across! And oh, the color!!
I love the background color in these next two - grays can make all those beautiful scraps really POP!
And this one just makes me smile! You can make this using either four mini-charm packs, or by cutting one regular charm pack in to quarters - a great way to use up that random charm pack you've got sitting in your stash!
You can find the links for all of these quilts and more on my "Oh Scrap!" Pinterest page - click here to go there!
So - - - do you feel inspired now? I'm thinking about taking my sewing machine with me to Savannah - wonder if I'll have time to do any sewing???
